Project 4: Hawaiian Sea Turtle Doodlebug Layout

Today is the day! My Doodlebug Design Team application is due. Wish me luck! I stayed up late working on my final project, this double page layout. My mom and I went to Hawaii for vacation last year, but I'm still playing scrapbook catch up, so I hadn't touched these photos. I did however, purchase these Doodlebug Sealife stickers and papers awhile ago and decided to save them to scrapbook my amazing sea turtle photos. I knew these adorable Doodlebug designs were perfect for my absolute favorite photos. Last night my local photo developer asked me for permission to blow up a poster-size photo of the turtle and me to display in their shop. :) Here is a look at the "Tashina and the Turtle" layout: 
Here is the first page. I love how the papers are so bright and cheery. The yellow mat is from the Doodlebug Welcome Home Collection: 
Aren't those glittery sea animals adorable?! I raised them on pop dots: 
I had been saving these tiny turtle Doodlebug boutique brads for these photos specifically:
Here is a look at the second page!
Shhh...here is a little secret. The only tags I have in my stash that matched my color scheme were from the Doodlebug Welcome Home Collection, but who places a couch in the middle of the ocean? I mounted a glittery octopus on white cards stock and...
Viola! Couch-at-sea problem solved! 
I am IN LOVE with this baby turtle! My only hope is that Doodlebug comes out with another beach/Hawaiian line because I'm going to Hawaii again in two weeks for my birthday! This time with a group of five friends. Please give us more stickers and lovely papers! Maybe with little hula girls this time? :)
I hope you enjoyed my projects. They were so fun to make and applying for the Doodlebug Design Team has forced me to use some of the papers I had been saving! Awesome!



  1. Tashina, your layout is very very nice!! I love the colors and the way you captured all the fun in true Doodlebug style! Best to you!

  4. I absolutely Love the Hawaiian layout. Great color schemes and use of the sea life collection. My favorite is page 2. This is design team worthy.
